Cooking wif Gidget: Peachy Keen Easter Dessert


Dis is a purrfect dessert for Easter. Or anytime if you want sumfing special to celebrate being hooman.

You will need 1 pkg (8-serving size) Peach JELL-O -- or 2 pkg of 4-serving size. 

1 pint vanilla icy cweam -- try not to cheap out, folks. You get what you pay for, ya know?

1 can (8-3/4oz size) sliced peaches, drained. Del Monte makes da tastiest canned peaches, but if you want to...again... cheap out, go ahead and buy from da dented bargain cans. 
Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for dis great dessert turning out cwappy.

2 cups boiling water (warning: dis is really hot stuff)

3/4 cup cold water (warning: dis is really cold stuff)

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Measure 1 cup of da gelatin and add cold water. Chill until slightly thickened. 

Add icy cweam to da remaining gelatin that is not being thickened -- stir until melty and smooth.
Pour icy cweam mixture into serving bowl or individual dessert glasses. A clear squat bowl looks really nice for dis dessert. Chill until set but not firm.*makes frowny face, shakes no-no paw*

Arrange peach slices on top of icy cweam layer in bowl. A nice circular fan looks really nice. Or you can just dump it on top if you are one of those hoomans who isn't into presentation.

Spoon clear gelatin over peaches. Chill until set. About 4 hours...or longer if you are ADD like my mom and kinda forget you made it.

Serves about ten hoomans or one weird kitteh who likes to eat froot

Happy Easter!
Deliciously yours, 

Don't Mess Wif Me!
